Celebrating Leona's 90th birthday at Colonial Village Apts, with Joyce Douglas on the left, Nancy Farley behind the chair. What a wonderful day it was when Leona moved in there. I was the manager at the time and did not realize besides gaining a kind considerate tenant I gained a friend who I admired and grew to love. Everyone in the building made a path to her door for the generous, understanding woman she was. She was a giver in this world and we all benefited from her, and we are so much better having had her in our life. God give you peace, we will not forget you. Love, Maggie
